Who's the new Raw GM?

The identity of the new Raw General Manager is buzzing all over the Internet. After all, it's got to be somebody good/controversial since past GMs include Eric Bischoff, Stephanie McMahon, Vickie Guerrero, Mike Adamle, Johnathan Coachman and Vince McMahon. Right?

Somehow, word got out that it's Abraham Washington. Yup, the guy who had a talk show that pretty much wasted about 20 minutes of ECW. Since ECW departed earlier this year, Washington has been hanging out in FCW doing color commentary. Will he be any good in this new role? Well, he did have a stint as FCW GM...

Since part of me is hoping the above information is simply rumor, here are some ideas I have:

Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan, whatever you want to call him) would be an interesting choice considering his friction with Michael Cole. Also, with his experience in Ring of Honor, he could bring a fresh perspective to Raw. I'm sure he would personally love to get his hands on the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship, and perhaps he could do that as GM, especially considering how many guys could be really injured and out after the Over the Limit PPV last night...

William Regal (one of guys who actually taught Danielson the business) is another choice. His rookie was eliminated from NXT, he was the WWF commissioner and he is a one-time manager of Raw and ECW. This also works with Teddy Long being a face manager on Smackdown-- a lot of times they like one to be face, the other heel so there are different conflicts on the shows. Plus, I like his character better when he's able to be manipulative.

Bill Goldberg is my last choice. He was tweeting a couple of months ago that he was working on a deal with the WWE, so this isn't that much of a dream. He is somebody who can get an incredible crowd reaction just by moving his pinkie. But, does he have management experience, you ask? Well, he was a contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice" this year (yeah, Maria did last longer). A one-night a week commitment probably won't conflict with his filming schedule for his DIY show "Garage Mahal" either...
